how much to have 5100's installed

Getting the rear TSB done next week, bought 4 5100's from downsouth. Since they rear tsb includes an alignment that i won't have to pay for, how much would be reasonable for them to install the 4 bilsteins? do they normally replace the rear shocks anyway on a rear leaf tsb? Thanks

Since you have a TRD, they wouldn't be replacing the front or rear shocks. It should only take them a couple hours with your truck on a lift but you can save a bunch of money doing it yourself and having them align it as part of the TSB. The rear shocks are very simple to install, the fronts are slightly more involved.

When I had my 5100's installed the dealership wanted $550 or so plus another $100 for the alignment to do the installation of my 5100's while they were going to do the TSB. Total ripoff and I let him know it. They did the TSB, and the next day I took it to another place that installed all four 5100's and an alignment for $340 total.

I just had the same thing done...they charged me $550.00 total, which included the 15k service, so approx $400?? subtract about $150 for alignment, and you looking at $350...which seemed reasonable to me.

Sierra Expeditions installed my entire front and rear suspension for $150 (5100's front and rear, new UCAs, new OME coils). Already have the Firestone lifetime alignment plan so factor some of that $160 into this and it probably ran me about $200 out the door.

Sure makes my 8 hour diy install worth it for those prices.

so i checked with the dealer, they said with the Rear TSB with covered alignment, it would be $274 to have the front and rear shocks switched out with the bilsteins i already purchased.
